Small Rural Hospital Transition (SRHT) Project

Assisting Small Rural Hospitals to Prepare for the Future

The SRHT Project is designed to transition rural hospitals to value-based care and Alternative Payment Models (APM), as well as prepare them for population health management. While consultations target financial and quality performance improvements, the primary focus of the technical assistance is to prepare providers for participation in value-based care models and APM (such as patient-centered medical homes and hospital shared saving plans) that position the hospitals for the future. Best practices and transition to value resources such as toolkits, guides, previously recorded HELP webinars, as well as success stories and outcomes showcased through hospital spotlights, PMG calls, and program examples are made available to support rural hospital and network leaders in preparing for population health. The Small Rural Hospital Transition (SRHT) Project is supported by Contract Number HHSH250201600012C from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.
